EXCITING NEWS!!!! UPDATE 6/19/14: P.A.W.S. of Central Louisiana is officially a 501c3 with non-profit organization status!!!

Update on 501c3 for those of you who are following our progress! We recently spoke with the IRS. We received our initial letter in April but had to send in an additional fee because we are so darn good at fundraising (all you wonderful sponsors and donors) which moved us up into a higher fee range. The second letter stating that our application was received and is being reviewed was sent to us. We are waiting to be assigned an Agent so the application can be reviewed more thoroughly, and unless we need to provide additional information we should receive our determination sometime in the next 90 days!

So many good things are happening with our group and we want everyone to be part of this! If you can foster an animal please let us know. We need new fosters so that we can adopt dogs and cats from the shelter to prevent euthanization. If you can volunteer your time, even if it is only occasionally, please let us know. If you want to have a larger role in the P.A.W.S. organization please let us know your strengths and what you can help us achieve. If you cannot foster but can take a foster dog for the day and take it to PetSmart or out in public to help socialize please contact us! We have vet bills additional to what the certificates from the shelter pays for, so if you want to donate but want to be sure of where your money is going, we can give you the names of our vets and you can donate money against our vet bills!

There are so many ways to help, both big and small. But please remember that no matter how small you think it is, everything done goes a long way to helping these babies. Thank you!

Who We Are

P.A.W.S. of Central Louisiana
P.A.W.S. was founded in August 2012 and in October 2012 a Board of Directors was elected, In January 2013 we filed with the state as a non-profit corporation and our 501c3 for non-profit status was filed in March 2013. On June 19, 2014, we became a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our primary goal is to spay and neuter cats and dogs to prevent needless euthanization of shelter animals and to rescue, foster and adopt abandoned, abused and surrendered animals. We have "adopted" Pineville Animal Shelter to promote adoption of their dogs and cats, raising the funds to save and foster as many of the animals as we can that have not been adopted before a scheduled PTS day. We do, however, rescue abandoned dogs in different parishes, and we help in situations where owners can no longer provide care for their pets and their only alternative is to surrender them to the shelter. We believe ALL Parish Animals Are Worth Saving.
We are in constant need of fosters, volunteers, and donations and welcome your help in any way you can.
